Planetary Science

Research in the planetary sciences at Wesleyan University is a vigorous and growing program within the Departments of Astronomy and Earth and Environmental Sciences. Our emphasis is the study of the origin of planetary systems, planetary geology and geochemistry and the application of remote sensing to terrestrial environmental problems. This work incorporates results from observational astronomy, planetary image analyses, and the laboratory and field studies of Earth analogues to other planets.
